Brick is a super sweet sorrel with flaxen mane and tail gelding that loves to be handled and will greet you as you carry the saddle out to ride. He has been handled daily since birth and started right. He leads, loads, ties, clips, bathes, and stands for his feet perfectly. He is supremely bred to work cattle with 3 NCHA Hall of Fame horses on his papers and will track anything that moves, as my cat and dog will attest. His sire is unshown but has point earning get, and his dam has team penning points. Both parents are HERDA N/N. He is your typical small but thick cutting bred baby at 14 hands currently and will probably reach 14-1 to 14-2 hands. I train my horses using dressage to teach proper carriage and balance, and I don't get in a hurry or push them hard. He had a few rides as a 2-year-old, but I did not put him into full training until this summer. He is going very well and will jog and lope on a loose rein as expected for his western breeding. He can also be picked up with contact for dressage work and cavaletti. Since he is only 3, he has not been put over fences, but he has potential as a pony hunter with his movement and athleticism or would also be a nice dressage pony. He is schooling into first level, and has a good work ethic. He will work a gate both forward and back from both sides, and he can forehand and hindquarter pivot and sidepass. His favorite word is "Whoa", and he responds to the verbal command faithfully. I ride him down 2 of the busiest roads in Beaumont, and we have even ridden through the McDonald's drive through a few times., My work and family commitments don’t allow me the luxury of hauling out and about or showing as a rule, but he has been to school at an indoor arena that didn't phase him a bit. He will goose a little if he sees something unfamiliar, but with his trusting nature, he’ll stay with you and go up to things to investigate. He’s good around dogs and cats and has seen cattle across the fence at one place he pastured for a while. He is not a kicker and doesn’t strike or bite, though he will nuzzle your pockets looking for treats. He’s been ridden through woods and will cross water. He has good, solid feet and does not need to be shod. Videos from this summer can be seen on youtube by searching "Brickbeards Rum", but he is much further along in his training now. I just don't have help or a dry place to re-shoot right now. His extended pedigree is on allbreedpedigree dot com under the same name. His only vice is that he will paw, but he is hobble trained, so if he's trying to dig to China, I just put the hobbles on him.
